In celebration of 40 years of the Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures, and in anticipation of the October 25, 2020 Lectures, we are highlighting the work of past speakers, asking for updates of their earlier remarks, and inviting them to reflect on current conditions.

On Thursday, July 30 at 2pm Eastern, Mary Berry and Bill McKibben will engage in a virtual conversation on Zoom reflecting on their original talks given current political, economic, and social realities, with comments on each other’s work. Registration is free. A question and answer period with participants will follow initial presentations. If you are unable to attend, a recording of the event will be available.
